Walking and Biking to School Safely
Nevada Moves March 19th 2014
Overweight children can experience immediate health consequences which can lead to weight-related health problems in adulthood. In addition to suffering from poor physical health, overweight children can often be targets of early social discrimination. Further, physical fitness has been shown to be associated with higher achievement. These facts are directly from the White House Task Force on Childhood Obesity.
Local communities are looking to SRTS programs as a way to potentially increase physical activity and to improve overall health. Last year 24 schools celebrated the benefits od exercise and an active lifestyle. The activities included Community Clean Ups, Jog A Thons, Fun Runs and Field Day Circuit Training. This year Officer Cloud is looking forward to your school signing up to join in this campaign for healthy students.
